Impact Studies & Mitigation Measures for Integration of Solar Photovoltaic Distributed Generation

Utilities are experiencing rapid proliferation of Solar Photovoltaic Distributed Generation (PV-DG) which is prompted by several factors including compliance with Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS). This can represent an important challenge for utilities since the intermittent nature of PV-DG leads to diverse impacts on distribution system operations and planning. These impacts are not only of steady state, but also of dynamic/transient nature. Quanta Technology has broad expertise with the assessment and mitigation of these impacts to allow the integration of PV-DG on power distribution systems.
